View Full Version : Power antenna conversion question

06-12-2005, 12:46 AM
I hate fixed mast antenna so much. Has anyone tried installing power antenna? Is there a way to set it up so that the antenna goes up only when you are listening to broadcast, so you can keep it down when you listen to CD's?

i dont know anything about the conversion but in my friends crown vic the antenna is hooked up to a switch so you can raise it or lower it when you want. you could probably do somethign like that.

Ya, my dad used to have an old Lincoln Continental and that one had an antenna switch on the dashboard, from the factory. Interesting.

wasn't there something around here before about having the antenna being relocated to the back windshield??

There is a kit for that, but I really do not want to pay money to get the antenna hole filled.

I think you just have to get an alero rear window, that'd be a nice clean mod.

I've thought about swapping an Alero rear window into my car, but my mom gets noticably worse reception in her Alero than my GA with a fixed mast antenna. (I've tested it personally, same stations, same roads)
